She's lookin great. It won't be long before you are out pounding the pavement in style.

To bold on the seats? I think not. They are great.

Before you know it you will be working on the Jeep in your new garage and staying in the new house. Very nice. I'm jealous.

It was pretty funny.

I only suggested all that cause you don't really know what the PO had done. When I put the 89 together from the old 82 stuff I found out that my front axle was slightly off due...

But I do agree with Rang on the location of the Spring center eye. Looks to be perpendicular from the frame to the old mount rivet. Picture might be deceiving, but you might be slightly off.

I'm gonna say you pretty screwed already cause of that serious hack job someone already accomplished.

IF you haven't already cut the mounts off, here's what I would do.

Almost all tires have a spec for "recommended" rim width. Simply look at the spec for the tire and see. I doubt a 31" tire will be out of "spec" for your stock rims and even if it close it won't hurt...

This.

It probably wouldn't be any harder than any other swap if you have the time-money-effort to put into it. You can find plenty of aftermarket support for hemi stuff.

Holy Cow!
